Butterflies .....

I've rekindle my love of butterflies and have been using them quite a lot lately ...
This is a card I made for my hubby's friend who celebrates his birthday today ...

I keep promising that I will make a stack of cards suitable for men ... I never seem to have one on hand and when it comes to having to do one ... my mind goes blank!

I guess butterflies are good for anyone right? And I do love this postcard stamp and wanted to use it ... I sponged a little Old Paper distress ink onto the leaves and found some butterflies on the internet ... I do have butterfly dies but I liked these and just did some fussy cutting

... added some pretty beads and a little thread of burlap too
You'll be seeing more butterfly cards ... Trust me

Other news ... Well my hubby's cousin who lives in Cornwall rang yesterday sooo excited! We'd just won a Gold medal in the Olympic rowing event and one of the lady rowers is a friend of our Cornwall family ... to think she'd only been rowing for a few years is indeed a huge accomplishment. 
And just so you know ... her family own a lovely ice cream shop in Cornwall ... so by my reckoning ice cream is very good for you!
Now aren't you glad I told you that?

The sun is shining here at the moment and I really hope it stays .. at least for today ... Ross and Sophia are coming and I am really really looking forward to seeing them .. It's been ages!

Have a wonderful day 

Till soon
